I work in a pre-WWII garage that houses a menagerie of used woodworking gear of various vintages:

  • Rigid 2412-1 TS
  • Shop Fox W1706 Band Saw
  • Three Craftsman Routers of various power and collet size
  • Craftsman Benchtop Drill Press
  • Dewalt Miter Saw
  • Ridgid 6HP Shop Vac
  • Simpson Sears 4 1/8” Jointer
  • A fair number of hand planes
  • A handful of vintage hand saws.
  • Various other lesser tools, including a circular saw, a power and cordless drills, finish sander, etc.

In addition to my tools, I also share space with SWMBO’s gardening gear and various other stuff. Not ideal, but I make the best of it.

Planned upgrades for the shop as time and funding allow, in no particular order -

  • Miter saw The existing Dewalt is not compound or sliding and limited to 4” cutting width.
  • Router Nothing wrong with the craftsman’s I already have, but the Milwaukee 5615-24 has been calling to me for a long time!
  • Router Table or insert for the TS I was going to spring for a TS insert and the previously mentioned Milwaukee 5615-24 earlier this year, but SWMBO put the kybosh on that plan with ideas of her own.

Planned knowledge upgrades for me -
